Welcome to Darwins

Darwins is a Family run restaurant offering contemporary international cuisine with an extensive menu catering for "carnivorous, coeliac and vegetarian" diners.  We pride ourselves on our certified Irish Black Angus beef and Wicklow lamb sourced directly by our in-house butcher from a small number of specially selected farms.

Our website is currently getting a makeover. Stay tuned!

Darwins Restaurant


We’ve missed you!
Reopening on the 22nd of July 2020!

Dear Friends,

It has been a while but we are coming back, not to normal but a new normal. We have all experienced the stress and anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic these last few months and we hope you are all safe and well as we start the journey on this next path together. When we reopen, we would like to reassure you that the safety of our guests and our staff will always be a priority. We have put the highest health and safety procedures in place to ensure a smooth experience for everyone that joins us.

Our chefs have designed a new concise menu that offers all the delicious flavours you know and love from Darwins. The meats are maturing in our dry aged room and we are working closely to support local suppliers and provide the finest ingredients for all our dishes.

There is lots of exciting news coming too. In these challenging times we have adapted and downsized our restaurant with a makeover inside. A fresh new look that we cannot wait to share with you.

We will be launching Darwins Brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm. The restaurant will be open for dinner Wednesday to Saturday from 5pm.

Brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 12pm.

We will also be starting Darwins at home, a new takeout menu for collection and delivery during opening hours.

We look forward to welcoming you back again with great food, good wine n chats to catch up on those missed occasions with friends and family.

See you soon!

Dolly, Amy & all the Darwins Team
